photos to keep long after they grow up
You've waited for what seems like forever to meet your newborn baby, then finally they are here and time is just flying by! This is where we come in.
Newborn photography will help you remember. Those sweet little feet, those tiny toes and lips - they are only this small for such a short time! Whether it's your very first newborn, third or sixth, we have done this hundreds of times. We’ll expertly lead you through the process of having your baby photographed while we create portrait art you will love!
Love your portraits today, every day and in 30 years from now when your baby is having babies.
Schedule your newborn session anytime before your due date and we will hold your spot for you. Scheduling after your baby has arrived? No problem, but contact us as soon as possible to see if we can get you on our schedule!
How it works
Newborns are best photographed between 5-18 days for those squishy and sleeping newborn portraits. However, we will photograph a newborn up to 4 weeks - it just takes a little more patience. Premie babies can be photographed as a newborn for up to 2 weeks after their original due date.
before the session
If you have some ideas for your newborn session, we would love to hear about them! If you don't, no problem. We have you covered.
In your home or at our studio, your choice!
In your home: It is very helpful to take photos of newborns where they are most comfortable - in your home. It's the easiest place for you as the parents as well! You have access to everything you need right there. We bring a traveling studio with us for the newborn sessions. This includes a newborn bean bag, lights, blankets, baskets, headbands, hats, and other props as well. We have LOTS of props! If you have anything like a blanket or outfit that is special to you - let us know ahead of time and we can incorporate that into the session.
At our studio: Just like with a home session, we have everything you need to make a perfect newborn session happen, but in our studio for your convenience. You don't have to worry about a thing!
Kristi is often referred to as "the baby whisperer" by our clients because of her patience and soft touch working with newborns. We believe in baby safety first and making sure that your baby is comfortable. This means we only do safe and natural poses.
You might be a new family with your first newborn or completing your family with your last blessing. Wherever you are in life, you are a family right now. Don't forget to include these important family portraits in your newborn session. You child will look back on these portraits and they will want to see YOU in them!
Worried about how you look? You just had a baby but you are radiant. You are a warrior momma. Those problem areas you might worry about on your body, don't worry! We know how to pose you to make you look your best!
We encourage taking sibling portraits with your newborn because this is a special time in their brother/sister relationship. They have a new sibling! Kristi's family often tells the story about her little brother being brought home from the hospital and as Kristi held him for the first time, she kept kissing his head. And everyone said, that's enough kisses! She would keep kissing him as she said, no more kisses, baby!
Let's capture this special sibling relationship with professional portraits that they will always cherish!
You spend hours holding your new little one, staring at the shape of their face, their eyelashes, their nose, their ears, their little lips, hands and baby feet. You think, I never want to forget all these wonderful details. Time goes on though, making it harder to remember all those baby parts that you loved so much. That's why at every newborn session, Kristi always photographs your baby's details. Their lips, nose, eyes, feet and hands. So that you can always remember, and never forget.
Don't forget, we have a limited number of newborn sessions available each month.
